a memorial for all wars: the Polynational War Memorial

Update Season 2014

The annual update of the war database is now underway. Updates are posted to the log as they are published.

 

A greatly improved master plan for the Polynational War Memorial is under production!

The Polynational War Memorial is an architectonic and conceptual proposal for a global war memorial to honour all who died in all wars since 1945, and for an organization that will work on a global level with education, research and diplomacy. The memorial will include more than 10 million names of military personnel, non-state combatants and civilians. The plan is to build six copies of the memorial complex in all corners of the world.

This website presents detailed descriptions of the concept and the proposal, and information on the latest acheivements. It also includes a library of physical and online memorials, and a series of articles about memorials.
